The Magic of
Music!
How music affects us every day of our
lives
If you think about it, there has hardly been a day in each of our lives when we have not heard
music playing at some point. It is on our car radio, it's on the television at home, it's
background music at the supermarket or Starbucks. In fact, music is pretty much everywhere!
But how does it actually affect us? Does it change us, influence our decisions and choices,
shape our personalities, help us to live better lives, or is it simply background music, purely for
our diversion and amusement. Well, here are a few aspects of music's effects to consider:
